Daedong Mobility and Onus sign agreement to outsource sales/services for two-wheeled electric vehicles


- Two-wheeled electric vehicles developed by Daedong Mobility will be sold/serviced through Onus’ online/offline networks
- New arrangement expected to help not only promotion/sales, but also Daedong Mobility’s brand power


Daedong Group's smart mobility subsidiary Daedong Mobility (CEO: Won Yu-hyun) announced on March 12 that it signed an outsourcing contract with Onus (CEO: Kim Jong-ho), a comprehensive two-wheeled vehicle management platform, to use Onus’ online/offline sales and service channels, which could help Daedong Mobility expand its presence in the two-wheeled electric vehicle (EV) market.


Established in 2005, Onus, formerly Korea Motorcycle Service, offers a comprehensive range of services for two-wheeled EVs, including sales, rental, maintenance, and insurance consulting. One of its strengths is its partnership with over 1,000 maintenance vendors across the country. Consumers can enjoy almost instant access to on-site and maintenance services anywhere in Korea.


This new contract will give Daedong Mobility a chance to sell and service its GS100 electric scooter, which was developed in-house and launched in the second quarter of last year (92% locally assembled), via Onus' offline network in Seoul, Incheon, and Gyeonggi-do region and also its online platform “Onus Rider” (a comprehensive service platform for two-wheeled vehicles). In particular, customers can enjoy more convenient and transparent maintenance services using various functions such as in-app payments for reservations, and maintenance history, information on standard maintenance fees, and access to more than 1,000 affiliated maintenance vendors nationwide within the Onus Rider app.

 


Daedong Mobility expects that this contract will help expand its customer contact points with additional offline and online channels for two-wheeled EVs, thereby helping promote and sell products and improving the company’s brand power in the market. Moreover, the GS110, a budget two-wheeled EV scheduled to be released in the first half of this year, will also be available for purchase and maintenance on Onus Rider, which is expected to have a positive impact on B2C sales.  


Meanwhile, Daedong Mobility's GS100 uses a battery swapping system (BSS) to find and replace charged batteries at the station, meaning riders do not have to wait for their batteries to recharge. The GS100 can travel up to 70km (when driving at a constant speed of 60km) on a single charge and has a maximum speed of 90km/h. Another advantage of the GS100 is that it maximizes convenience and safety for riders with excellent specifications and functions, including ▲a dedicated app to manage consumables; ▲driver reports; ▲cellphone holder; ▲height-adjustable windshield; ▲full-size helmet storage compartment; ▲front and rear dashboard cameras as standard; and a ▲smart key system. In addition to core parts such as the motor, powertrain, and battery, general parts for the GS100 are also produced in Korea, which is why it ensures better quality and a much more stable supply network for parts compared to other competing products.
